There is no options to define exceptions in policies to allow data saving in certain folders.  Now most of us will think WIP (windows information protection) policy will help us protecting the data on device, however that's not completely true as . User can change the File Ownership to personal if the WIP policy is set to Allow Override. User can save the file locally on the system User will not be able to copy the data from work file to Personal file if policy is set to Allow override. Unenlightened apps cannot differentiate between personal and corporate data
